    Hpa, h.r.367

    Since I got the 300 BO pistol I've been looking into suppressors. Can't seem to find how far this bill has got along. Is it dead in the water or is there still hope? Not having to pay the tax stamp and wait a year would be nice.

    No idea why title did that. They were capitalized.

    We as a country have a blown engine, a transmission that slips in every forward gear, and a rear diff with a loud whine. And our politicians keep trying to spray armorall on the tires and proudly step back as if they are helping fix the car.

    This is a classic "go nowhere" bill designed and submitted by pols in order to get support from their district constituency.

    This bill never had a chance, but 2A supporters know who endorsed it for the next election cycle(s).

    It had a small chance right after the election, but as soon as the three ring circus got spooled up, it was dead in the water.

    The mass shooting in Las Vegas canned any chances of it passing, even though that shooter didn't use one. But that bill was one of the FIRST things the 'Enemies of Freedom Caucus', a.k.a. the Democrat party and their RINO minions jumped on, along with the bump stock.

    Yep, a "feel good" bill that, while I think it NEEDS to be passed, never will be in my lifetime.
    At least that's my thoughts on it.

    I think you're right on that. The Congresscritters are getting their knickers in a knot and simultaneously loading their Depends on that muzzleloader with the integral suppressor on it. IT'S A .50 CAL. RIFLE AND WILL TAKE DOWN A 747! OH NOES!! AND IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY NOISE! LOOPHOLE! LOOPHOLE! GOTTA CLOSE THAT LOOPHOLE FAST!
